Port Stanley, Ontario

Port Stanley is a historic fishing village on the north shore of Lake Erie and possesses some of the finest beach on the north side of the lake. Kettle Creek meanders through the town giving way to many pleasure boats. Kettle Creek was called by the Iroquois the "Kanagio", by the Ojibwas the "Akiksibi", by the French the "Riviere Tonti:. General Brock’s expedition encamped on the beach, 9th August, 1812, on its way to Detroit. The port also attracts large Lakers because of its inland federal harbour. The historical King George V1 lift bridge is the oldest of its kind in Ontario and located in the centre of town.

Visitors can ride an authentic railway car c 1940 and enjoy scenic views of the meandering Kettle Creek and the surrounding countryside.
